Trust Your Intuition

May 2009 YES Newsletter

Intuition is having the perceptive ability of instinctively knowing something without having prior knowledge. It is a very powerful source of internal wisdom, a sense of knowing that we experience either by a gut feeling, a burst of insight, a sudden realization, or a hunch. It gives us a glimpse or vision of something that even sometimes may go against what our rational mind suggests. According to Albert Einstein "the only real valuable thing is intuition." Our intuition is a special gift, an extra sense that we must learn to trust each day as we actively attempt to make strides in life.

There are times when you have an important decision to make and your intuition disagrees with your cognition. What do you do? Do you ignore your intuition?

Our intuition is our own personal, built in radar system. When you ignore it you are sending subconscious signals to your brain that you donít trust it. Because your intuition is located within the subconscious, this creates mistrust of the intuitive ability. Your doubts and fears take over and in time you can stifle that sixth sense within, which can save you many years of bad decisions.

When making decisions, you must learn to depend on your intuition to guide you. There is no limit to the assistance and guidance our intuition provides. If there is a conflict between cognition and intuition, allow the intuition to win! It is a resource that needs to be tapped into more often so you can stop second guessing yourself. It is wisdom that already exists at our deepest core so why not use it. Once you have allowed your intuition to make the decision then allow your logic and reason to follow up with the research. When this resource is used, you will experience advances in many areas of your life. You will move steps closer to achieving your goals.

As you use your intuition more often, just like a muscle, it becomes more fine-tuned and stronger and you will be able to depend on it more frequently. By trusting that wisdom inside you no longer need to look outside yourself for the answers you seek. You will be able to allow it to guide you into making better decisions and turn away from making bad ones.

Begin today to open your heart and mind enough to trust your intuition! Here's how you can start:

  • Spend time alone getting to know yourself. By doing so you are learning to listen to yourself. You are tuning in with your inner self and forming a trusting bond with your intellect.

  • Pay attention to your body language. When making a decision follow the clues your body gives you. The sweaty palms, the discomfort, the uneasiness, the sick feeling in your stomach, or a lump in the throat are powerful "Stop Signs". The effortless breathing, feelings of elation, a calm gut, feeling comfortable, or a burst of energy are all "Green Lights" from your intuition.
  • Tune in to the positive. Surround your life by positive people and things. By staying in the frequency of positivity, you will more readily be willing to follow your intuition.

    To Your Success
